It is required that all students carry a cell phone that works overseas for contact
purposes in an emergency. All devices should be equipped with a data package. Students
may bring a phone configured for overseas from home, or may purchase a device when
they arrive in Italy. Please do your own research and decide what option will be best
for you. Some options past students have used are below.
In addition, there are many free applications that allow you to call, text, video
chat, and message by solely using your Wifi connection. A few of these free apps are
Whatsapp, Voxer, Viber and Textfree.
